Alongside Santa, Gingerbread is associated with Christmas. My easy Gingerbread crafts for kids will help them get into the festive spirit of Christmas.
Gingerbread goes way back to the 16th century so it has been around for a very long time. People still love to eat it and can have it in the form of round biscuits. I did have a craving for these when I was pregnant.
In more recent times people transformed the gingerbread into the shape of a man or woman, which kids love to decorate and eat.
Even more recently people decided to use all sorts of craft materials to make gingerbread men, women and houses!
I have a wide variety of easy Gingerbread crafts for kids to make from bookmarks, to clay pot crafts and even a lovely Christmas card.
In the future I do plan on adding some puppets, paper plate Gingerbread men and some toilet paper roll and pipe cleaner Gingerbread people.
So far I have non edible gingerbread crafts but I do plan on doing some edible versions soon. There are already lots of these on offer.
